About us

Description

The ancient Rishis or seers, having delved into the depths of their being, closely analyzed all of the layers of the human existence. In this process of self-inquiry, they discovered that in essence we are but pure consciousness, and that various factors and conditionings cloud our vision and hide this truth. They laid out practices for clarifying our vision so we too can have this first-hand knowledge. Yoga has been prescribed as preparatory practices, for purifying the heart and balancing the mind. For unveiling the deeper truths, Vedanta has been prescribed.

The original and most authoritative teachings of Vedanta are in the Upanishads, which are the latter part of the Vedas, the most ancient spiritual texts known to humanity. The upanishads reveal the unity of the individual being and the universal presence, declaring that in essence we are but the one universal consciousness. Due to lack of inner clarity and the unsteady nature of the mind, we aren’t aware of this basic fact and identify ourselves with situations and various notions. These in turn sow the seed for ups and downs, pain, suffering and disappointment, and according to yogis, the continuous cycle of births and deaths. The Ishavasya Upanishad is one of the most concise and most widely studied upanishads. It starts with the well-known verse “Ishavasyam Idam Sarvam” – the Universal Spirit indwells everything, it is the unifying factor behind all names and forms. Traditionally, Vedanta is studied by listening to the teachings from an experienced teacher, reflecting on them to help clarify our doubts, and meditating on these truths.

This weekend intensive will help clarify the roles of Yoga and Vedanta in our spiritual journey, and deepen our understanding on the Vedantic vision.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
